    I really like Pennsylvania, I would be far more concerned with Lyme Disease in that area in June than rocks. Southern PA is great, easy walking with few rocks, I've been through twice and the rocks...

    Packs pick you more than you pick a pack. How a pack feels and fits is very important, so get a bunch on your back loaded and see what works for you. Something around 60-70 litres should be ample...
